Slavery the Game is probably not real, but... wow


12:00 AM on 09.04.2011



[Update: There's a phone number on the site, 1-502-383-1956, that connects you to a Google Voice line. Yeah, this is starting to sound like some garage developer's having a few jollies.]

A website with a teaser trailer for something called Slavery the Game just opened up. Slavery the Game. A strategy game in which you buy, sell, and "discipline" slaves.

Ummmmm... yeeeeeeeah....

There is no way on Earth that this can be real. The game is purported to arrive on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in Spring 2012, carrying a rating of Adults Only. Considering that none of the console manufacturers would allow an AO game on their platform, this whole business seems like viral marketing for another as-of-yet-revealed game. This is supported by the fact that searching for any info on the supposed "developer," Javelin Reds Gaming, turns up nothing.

Regardless of the reason for this... thing, who thought this would be a good idea? It's not like it's played up for laughs, either -- it's not like Dave Chappelle's Roots spoof. The supposed game sounds extremely visceral and serious in tone. What kind of reaction is this going for? What possible benefit could come out of this whole mess? Just... I... WHY!?

[Thanks for the tip, Anthony]

Max's five reasons Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor kicks ass

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise! Still not sure I'll rush out to grab the game at launch on Tuesday -- I've got my hands full, as I'm sure many of you will shortly -- but it's much higher on my to-play list after this week.more

Hardline 30: D4 is weird, Blizzard cancels Titan, and Steam curators for days

Steven was too busy grocery shopping to attend this week's Hardline, but that didn't stop me, Brett, and Bill from talking about Blizzard canceling its MMO Titan, opium dens, Steam's redesign, the mean streets of Japan, Swery65's bizarre D4, and time traveling for the Tokyo Game Show.

Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers

In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? (Yes. That's exactly what it is.)more
